       I recently went on a holiday to Scotland, and I visited this very special place.

    dotsRannoch Moordots

    There hides a place up to the North
    Part of paradise and hell
    Where eagles soar, and cattle roam
    By the glade and through the dell
    A place where dreams and nightmares meet
    On that you can be sure
    So be careful if you find yourself
    Alone on Rannoch moor

    So eerie, yet so beautiful
    It will fill your heart with glee
    The great glen it will beckon you
    As it rolls down to the sea
    The rowan tree so regal
    As she stands with much demure
    Swaying gently in the breeze
    On the hill in Rannoch moor

    Come still of night, as darkness falls
    All around the countryside
    The banshee wails her song of woe
    To all, both far and wide
    The wind will chill you to the bone
    With the air so fresh and pure
    So haunting and so desolate
    This place called Rannoch moor

    So listen now, and listen well
    To this tale I tell to you
    Do not forget to heed my words
    As, every line is true
    This place will draw you onward
    With its powerful allure
    And soon you will be heading North
    On your way to Rannoch moor

      I really like this poem, as with most poeple I have a yearning to go to wild and dramatic landscapes. My only tiny negative comment is about, 'the banshee wails his song'. A banshee is female not male.

      Frank, I looked up photographic views of Rannoch Moor on the Internet, and the views certainly added enjoyment to your delightful and masterful poem! This is an area which our Native American Indians would undoubtedly label "as a place where Spirits dwell"!

    Your poem is so excellent in every regard! It was an amazing and delightful read!
